Newbies - Just starting out

A place for those of us who are just dipping our toes into Homegrown living. Maybe we're looking to change how we buy our food, what we buy...Maybe we've started our first garden and have questions. If you're green, this is the place for you!

"This reminds me of an acquaintance of mine who I affectionately nicknamed, "Environmental Bike Guy."  Voluntarily rode a bike everywhere--as long as the weather was nice--to save the planet.  But, the second he needed to haul…"

"Apocalypse Garden... bwhahahaha!  That sounds so badass.  :-)  No, seriously, I get what Terri is saying about fearing what's going on with the food system and therefore understanding the NEED to learn how to garden, etc. …"

"Wow... y'all have been all over the map in this thread.  I actually sat here and just read off the computer screen, which I generally hate doing, for about an hour, trying to catch up and process all the ideas pinging all over the…"

"Pat--You make an excellent point.  Having social networks and people nearby who are passionate about making this kind of life work is huge.  I love this site, but having people to work with directly in "real time" is uniquely…"

"Hi All (Again),   Exactly.  I guess I'm looking for skills that work within a system I can use and... gasp!... maintain.  I'm running the marathon instead of sprinting, 'cause I know myself, and I know I will overwhelm…"

"Hope you don't mind my jumping in here, but I see this lifestyle... whateva you want to call it... as a new essentiality (not a word, I know).  To echo what many have said before, mainstream American lifestyles are generally not…"

Profile Information

What kind of HOMEGROWN are you?
Earth Mama, Dirt Under My Fingernails City Slicker
Fill in the blank:
Gypsy
A bit about me:
Teacher, writer, artist, humorist, and sustainable living enthusiast. Married to amazing man, Mama to two spirited little girls, guardian of two rescued dogs, and we move a lot and all over. Therefore, my challenge has been learning to cook and grow as much as our food sustainably but in a way that's affordable for our itinerant lifestyle.
Latest greatest meal cooked at home:
Roasted farmer's market duck with sweet potatoes and green beans.
Currently reading:
The Omnivore's Dilemma and The Urban Homestead, as well as The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate
Currently listening to:
The French-speaking, Belgian plumbers my landlord sent over this morning, unannounced, to fix the crazy plumbing that makes our furnace and radiators function. This is beyond DIY, as this is 1940s-style plumbing techniques and methods...
My latest DIY project:
Fixing a hole in my daughter's decorative "fairy pillow" that was torn by my soft-stuffing-craving dog.
